OUBAAS Trail now open

Hello Patrons! We are pleased to announce that the Oubaas Trail is well used and the hikers / walkers have been most considerate by using the Donation Box outside the Museum to show their appreciation. The Museum itself will not be opened for a while yet - but we will keep you posted. Should anyone wish to retrieve any information regarding Smuts House or history, please email us and we will assist where possible: info@smutshouse.co.za. Ouma Isies Tea Garden is also fully functional now. Contact Jan du Toit at: 072 728 8982 for reservations. Looking forward to hearing from you!!


MUSEUM: Visiting hours


Due to the Covid lockdown the Museum is presently closed  but the Tea Garden is open daily Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 to 16:30. 

Dear Patrons, please take note that as of 1 June 2019 the entrance fees to the Museum will be amended to: R50.00 / adult and R30 / student and pensioner. We have kept our prices as low as possible in the foregoing years but need to align ourselves with other Heritage Sites. Bear in mind the entire homestead is private property and we benefit from no grants or subsidies. Many thanks for your support.
